Peter P. Schellenberg: elder and minister; born in Blumenfeld, South Russia on 17 September 1887, the son of Peter Schellenberg (d. 1893, Blumenfeld, Russia) and Maria (Sudermann) Schellenberg (d. 1919, Steinbach, South Russia). On 23 April 1918 Peter married Judith Froese (26 September 1890, Novo Zhitomir, Judenplan, South Russia – 12 September 1966, Coaldale, Alberta, Canada). Peter and Judith had eight children. Peter died on 1 April 1982 in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada.

Peter was baptized by Elder Isaac Dyck on 7 June 1908. In February 1922 Peter was elected to the ministry by the Georgstal congregation in the Fürstenland Mennonite Settlement and was ordained on 26 September 1922.

Peter and his family moved to Canada in October 1926, arriving in Dundurn, Saskatchewan. They also lived in Eyebrow, Saskatchewan before moving to Coaldale, Alberta in May 1931. Shortly after arriving in Coaldale, Peter was asked to lead the Coaldale Mennonite Church. On 10 April 1949 he was ordained as Elder.

Peter retired on 16 January 1965, having served 43 years in ministry. He continued conducting Bible studies and worship services at the seniors’ home, and preached on occasion. In the fall of 1974 he had a slight stroke which made it difficult for him to care for his daughter who had a debilitating nerve disorder. He moved to Abbotsford, British Columbia and retired to the Menno Home in December 1974.
